Inspiration: Dan Eldon (1970-1993)

"As an artist, as a chronicler of a moment in time and as a human being, he seems to me to have been brave, curios, adventurous, passionate, creative, pioneering, persuasive, powerful and altogether ahead of his time."
- Seth Apter, The Mixed Media Artist

Dan Eldon's work remind me a lot of Peter Beard's diaries.

  1. I can see a similarity to Peter Beard's diaries as well. What happened to Dan and his colleagues was really sad.

  3. Never heard of him, but I hear he died during the battle Americans know better as Black Hawk Down.

    Somalia is almost a lost cause. Arguably the worst country in the world.

  11. This was such an interesting post, I remember hearing about him, you can certainly see the resemblance with Beard's diaries too. Tragic, he was so young.

  16. My diaries never come out looking quite as chaotic or clever... perhaps it's time to do something about that?
